President Donald Trump’s final message to the Republican faithful ahead of Tuesday’s midterm vote is all about immigration, and GOP officials hope it’s enough to get out the vote. But White House correspondent John T. Bennett says that with most polls pointing to big Democratic gains in the House, Trump’s team is focusing on defending the slim GOP majority in the Senate, and just maybe adding a few seats. It won’t help much with passing legislation, but it will aid Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s push to install more conservative judges to the federal bench.
